The Sprint store in downtown Decatur has closed and the building’s owner is trying to find a new tenant.

The building’s owner told Decaturish the store has been closed about a month and said Sprint decided to leave Decatur after being the target of several armed robberies.

Decatur Police say robbers targeted the store on Jan. 23, December of 2018, July of 2018 and in July of 2017.

In each case, the suspects took smart phones from the store.

In January, a sign was posted on the door of the Sprint store saying it would be closed until further notice due to “system issues.”

District Manager Nikki Miller also confirmed the robberies at the store caused the company to leave Decatur.

When asked why the store was targeted so frequently she said, “I’m not sure. Not sure at all.”
